A Carmel Valley Ranch Proposal | DeAnna + David | Carmel Valley, California

When I saw that I had a missed call from Jeff’s cousin, David, something clicked inside my brain. “HE’S PROPOSING TO DEANNA!” I thought. And guess what? I was RIGHT! David had devised a plan to whisk DeAnna away to Carmel Valley Ranch for a “weekend getaway,” and while she might have had an inkling that this could very well be the moment, she could have never guessed all of the surprises David had in store for her. Jeff and I arrived early and hiked the short distance to a stunning overlook of the Carmel Valley. We stayed incognito with hats and heavy jackets and our hearts were beating out of our chests as David and DeAnna approached. Under the shadow of a gorgeous oak tree, and with a breathtaking view of the valley in the background, David bent down on one knee as he promised DeAnna forever… and then pulled the most INCREDIBLE ring out of his pocket! After a resounding ‘yes’ from DeAnna, lots of hugs, and a little time to let the moment sink in, we walked back down to the main property, with a few more stops for photos along the way. As we rounded the corner in the vineyard, DeAnna was shocked to find her sister, Christina, and David’s brother, Richard, waiting for them among the vines with some celebratory bubbly, more hugs and lots of happy tears. We toasted the newly engaged couple and said our goodbyes shortly after. “We’d love to continue celebrating, but we have to get back to the city,” we said, deceptively, and rushed off to the next surprise. David had arranged one of their traditional “Sunday Night Dinners” nearby at a family friend’s beautiful home with their parents and some of their closest friends anxiously awaiting their arrival. Fittingly, of course, because it was one such Sunday night that David and DeAnna first met one another. After another huge surprise (and even more happy tears!) it was time for a delicious meal, prepared by David and his family.  As we sat around the table, toasting the happy couple once again, you could tell how loved these two are, and it’s easy to see why. David and DeAnna, we couldn’t be any happier for you and cannot WAIT to celebrate more with you soon!Carmel-Valley-Ranch-Proposal_1000.jpg
